Published May 18, 2012


On April 21, the 2012 Lyrid meteor shower peaked in the skies over Earth. While NASA allsky cameras were looking up, astronaut Don Pettit aboard the International Space Station trained his video camera on Earth below. Video footage has revealed breathtaking images of meteors ablating -- or burning up -- over Earth at night. This video is a composite of 310 still frames from that evening. (NASA/JSC/Don Pettit)
